Diagonal Sleeping



Whenever I sleep alone, I love to sleep diagonally in large beds.

That slanted position fills the emptiness and stretches the soul in new directions. It’s no longer womb-like, fetal sleeping. It’s an assertive position that enters the world as a vector.

Bold and fearful.

It wants to travel alone.

But needs to fill the hole of motherlessness.

The dark kind of solitude that can haunt when the world is dreary.

And after awakening, I can dress in costume to comfort my panic.

Pretend I’m young and fearless again.


Dance with my fantasies of fear and desire.


Try to lock them into balance  and steady myself for a new day.

Eating Sorrow


An Experiment in Haiku - Ninja Style



Place setting for one

Cup of tears; plate of lonely

I eat the sorrow.



A dancing ninja can put a little caffeinated whimsy in the saddest of poems. I’m honored every time he comes to balance my soul with his happy sword!
